Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today’s preview from our soon-to-be released Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool & X-Force set features a character who hasn’t been seen in HeroClix form since 2005’s Fantastic Forces set. Please welcome back the leader of X-Statix, Orphan (aka Mr. Sensitive)!

With a dial that’s five clicks deep and a point value of 70, Orphan begins play with a pair of traits that work together to increase the odds of his attacks hitting. The first trait, Headlines!, generates Headline tokens after Orphan hits one or more opposing characters. The second trait, Mr. Sensitive, lets Orphan use his Headline tokens to roll that many additional dice when he makes an attack. The roll can’t be rerolled and you ignore all but two of the results.
Headline tokens aren’t just limited to Orphan’s Mr. Sensitive trait. His damage slot features a special power called The Fans Love Our Infighting, which lets him remove a Headline token from a teammate and give it to another friendly character. The Fans Love Our Infighting also lets Orphan use Leadership. Orphan is built for close combat, so the rest of his dial features full runs of Super Senses and Precision Strike, and spurts of Charge, Sidestep and Outwit.
Orphan has the X-Men team ability to heal back to more useful clicks. His combat values are also fairly steady. For themed team building, Orphan has the X-Force, X-Statix, Celebrity and Martial Artist keywords.
